"We look before and after ...” 

The class of 1943 of Emerson College offers this book as a tribute to the 
jiast and a salute to the future. To hold fast in memory the happiness, the 
sorrow, the high hope, and the inevitable disillusion of youth — this book is 
pledged. But it is not in the past that we must live. As college closes one 
door behind us, a broader vista opens before us — a war to hght and a peace to 
win. Therefore it is to the future that we dedicate ourselves. 

This book is a record of our college years. Beyond that we can say noth- 
ing — for there is too much to be said, and we have no fitting words.

Emersonians of the past knew Harry Seymour Ross as a 
sympathetic and understanding Dean who was their academic 
example as well as their personal friend and counselor. We 
know this kindly gentleman as our President, whose wise super- 
vision of our college activities and generous interest in our prob- 
lems have endeared him to all of us. Passing from class to 
class, students are surprised to hear someone calling them by 
name and stopping them for a humorous anecdote or a bit of 
fatherly advice. During the four years of our sojourn at Emer- 
son our respect and admiration for President Ross have con- 
tinually increased, and this devotion will not diminish in the 
coming years. Eor long after various college events have been 
forgotten, the personality of this scholarly gentleman will re- 
main with Emersonians, enriching their lives. We will remem- 
ber Harry Seymour Ross as one "who saw life steadily and saw 
it whole ...”

If a Gallup poll were taken at Emerson on the question, 
"Who are some of your favorite people at college?” we would 
bet our last ration stamp that one of those popular individuals 
would be our inimitable Technical Director and Publications 
Editor, Robert J. Wade. We know him through effective set- 
tings for our plays, practical and efficient teaching of a fine art, 
and the generous and patient assistance he has given us in the 
task of preparing this book. But the cjualities for which we 
will always remember Mr. Wade are intuitive understanding, 
keen perception — and that utterly priceless sense of humor. In 
sincere gratitude for all these things he has given us, we dedi- 
cate this book to our teacher and friend,

When the class of 1943 came to Emerson College as brash young fresh- 
men, we thought of the war, then just beginning, as a disaster which might 
never touch us in any way. That was in the fall of ’39, but our college life be- 
gan normally enough with Frosh-Soph Night, and our hilarious attempts to en- 
tertain the sophomores. Part of class record will always be the performances 
of "Little Audrey,” Olive, Martha-Jane, and Laurie. There were six class of- 
fices to be won, and by dint of much audacious and ingenious campaigning, 
the men captured five of these positions, led by President Dick Kilbourne. When 
that horror of horrors, our first exam period, rolled around, the ubiquitous Nick 
Stantley devised a sugar coating for the bitter pill. We pooled our limited re- 
sources of hard-won knowledge in cramming sessions known as "Mid-Year- 
lings.” Nick later pointed with pride to the fact that every student who made 
Dean’s List that semester had been present at those glorified auctions of in- 

We now take our fine Drama Workshop so much for granted that it is a 
slight shock to remember that our freshman play (The Distaff Side) and panto- 
mimes (The Tale of a Royal Vest and The Organ Grinder) were presented in 
the Lee Auditorium at the Pioneer Hotel. 

As Paris fell in the spring of ’40, we said good-bye to our freshman year 
and to several of our prominent classmates. When we returned that fall we 
felt that we had grown up — we were sophomores! Now it was our turn to 
illustrate "How to Torture Your Friends” at Frosh-Soph Night. We had risen 
to the level of One- Act Plays, and this year our public productions were pre- 
sented in the new Theatre. The sophomores, under the leadership of Class 
President Bob Lord, sponsored a Valentine Hop at which we all wore our 
hearts on our sleeves — literally. 

On December eighth, when we were juniors, the entire student body sat 
silently in the Theatre and listened on the radio to President Roosevelt’s speech 
declaring war on Germany and Japan. The war, which had seemed so vague 
and distant, now came into the Theatre and stood beside each one of us as the 
National Anthem was played. The men in our class began to leave one by 
one. The activities which had once seemed so vital became relatively insig- 

But the gayest social event of the year, the Junior Prom, was as gay and 
glittering as ever. Jane Dibble made a most efficient Prom chairman — and 
also a most charming Prom Queen, with Bunny Bowman and Jackie Kinney, 
Class President, as her attendants. 

Page Sixteen 

Our junior plays were Family Portrait, Oat of the Frying Pan and The 
Two Orphans. In May Lois Allard was crowned May Queen at the annual 
Dance Drama. 

When senior year opened just a few short months ago, we paused to 
glance backward, and to remember the many classmates who had left us for 
various reasons — chief among these being the war. Then we turned to the 
work of our final college semesters, a bit older, a bit more serious, with Lois 
Allard as our President. One of the most important of all Emerson traditions, 
the Old English revival play, was continued as we presented Mach Ado Aboat 
Nothing early in December. 

And now, in caps and gowns, we plan distractedly for our Commencement 
activities, we whisper about Sneak Day, we work feverishly on our class annual 
— in fact, we do anything at all to keep from facing squarely the knowledge 
that soon the recital tea, the Commencement plays, and the Baccalaureate ad- 
dress will be only memories, and we will be "out in the cold, cold world.” 

We have worked, played, and laughed together. Many changes in the 
school, as well as in the world, have come about during our college years. 
We, too, have changed; we are a bit less casual, a little more realistic than we 
were, for we know what we must face. 

Say we’re graduating, but add: "College was fun!”

This is the unfinished symphony of the Junior Class — unfinished because there are only 
three movements: the allegro, andante, and scherzo. The finale is yet to come. 

In music, the vs'ord allegro denotes a brisk or sprightly passage, and that is truly descrip- 
tive of our freshman year conducted by President John Sheehan and his cabinet. This was a 
year composed of happy pizzicatos originating in the Inter-Class Dance at the Hotel Sheraton, 
the unsubdued innovations of the sophomores’ Fresh-Soph Night, our guileless efforts in the 
cause of frustrated art (remodelling the smoker), our proud gift of a radio-victrola to the 
college, and that dynamic trip to Provincetown! 

Our sophomore year ushered in the second movement of our college symphony — the 
andante, marking a moderate onward progression still under the capable baton of John Shee- 
han. On Fresh-Soph Night it was our turn to create a discordant note among the freshmen, 
while we took a rest. But we overlooked their unharmonic improvisations, and gave them a 
Snowball Dance in the theatre. In Public Productions we presented the dramatic three-act 
play "Night Over Taos. ” In this year we lost many of our members to the armed forces, in- 
cluding our popular President. 

The symphony is now in its third movement, the scherzo, led by Class President Barnaby 
Smith. This scherzo, however, is not of the traditional sportive character, for a serious note 
has crept in. We produced "Key Largo, " and "Heart of the City” which was presented at 
Army camps. The scherzo quickly skips to the climactic Junior Prom, and then the melody 
suddenly stops in this our junior year. 

The symphony is still unfinished, but perhaps our former classmates will be able to come 
back in time for the finale next year, for without them the symphony will be incomplete for-

The thing to do first was to choose class officers, and consequently Roberta Swann was 
named President, with Betty Bird, Elizabeth Urban and Florence Eldredge serving as 'Vice- 
President, Secretary, and Treasurer respectively. 

As "unworthy freshmen " the members of the class of '45 had nevertheless participated 
in numerous activities among which were a contest, the results of which found Jean Richter 
named "Miss Emerson Freshman,” and a "Snowball Dance" held in collaboration with the 
sophomores at which a real "big time " floor show was presented. 

"With this record behind them, the class naturally had something to live up to, so they 
began their activities as an organized group of well-meaning and dignified ( ! ) sophomores by 
holding a "blackout party" at which they entertained (?) a group of green and trembling

The members of the sophomore class wish to take a part of the space allotted for their 
history to pay tribute to two of their classmates, Jane Peavey and Marilen Playdon, who lost 
their lives in the Cocoanut Grove holocaust last November. Both girls were on Dean's List, 
and Marilen was treasurer of the Student Government Association. 

We who had the privilege of knowing them even for a short time are grateful for that 
privilege, and we feel that, in spite of what has happened, something of them still lives on 
in the hearts of those classmates who knew and loved them and whose lives were made more 
pleasant through association with them.

In September, 1942, when we of the class of '46 entered Emerson, we were strangers in 
a small community where everyone else had already become adapted to college life and rou- 
tine; but within the first few weeks, we were acquainted with our own classmates and had a 
nodding acquaintance with all the upperclassmen. For this, we owe thanks to the Sopho- 
mores, Juniors, and Seniors for their friendliness and generosity that helped us shape our 
social and academic life, and to the faculty for their guidance and interest in each individual. 

One of our first duties as a class was to elect officers. The following were chosen, and 
have proven themselves capable and inspiring leaders: Eleanor Cline, President; Dorothy 
Thompson, Secretary; and Elmore Day, Treasurer. 

With Mr. Shaw, we learned the first principles of acting, that we may go on to the 
glory of public productions next year as Sophomores. With such plays as Ring Around 
Elizabeth, Angel Street, The Little Foxes, Susan and God, Ladies in Retirement, and Return 
Engagement , we made our debut into the fascinating realm of theatre. 

Despite war and world misery, we pray that we may keep our faith and idealistic hope 
of bringing beauty into the lives of the people.

The International Relations Club has had a lot of food for thought this 
year. When will the war end? What will be the economic problems after 
the war, and of what nature will be the peace? These and other problems 
have kept the brain trust busy. This year, as in the past, we hold our monthly 
luncheon meetings at the Wilbur, and under the leadership of Dr. McKinley 
and Dr. Parkhurst have managed to keep up with the news. At each meeting 
a book dealing with current problems is reviewed, and then the meeting is open 
for free discussion.

One of the most democratic groups at Emerson, the Student Government 
Association represents the self-governing powers of the student body. Under 
the new constitution the organization is smaller than formerly, and includes 
two representatives from each class. 

The successful Inter-Class Dance at the Hotel Statler last October, held in 
honor of the freshman class, was the first social function of the year to be spon- 
sored by the S. G. A. Later in the year there will be other activities under 
the leadership of the association. 

The tasteful and lovely re-decorating of the smoker during Christmas va- 
cation is an example of the good work done by this organization.

Quips, jollity, and scintillating repartee — that’s Kappa! And the quin- 
tessence — those gay episodic week-ends in the Berkshires — the congeniality of 
the Henich’s. Ah me! Who can forget their haystack? Or that first breath- 
less snowfall on the week-end in Bethlehem? Or the teasing aroma of robust 
charcoal steaks on that memorable week-end at the Kenney’s in Freedom, New 
Hampshire? And, of course, the Kappa baby, Edward Anson Robbins? 

Remember Mrs. Wade’s studio suppers: firelight, group singing, warmth, 
and friendship? The trips to the Cape, the Elsa Maxwell rush party, the heroic 
climb up Mt. Washington, the formal teas, the gracious hospitality of the Mc- 
Kinley’s . . . And who could forget those candid camera shots! 

Yes, we are glad for all the sparkling gaiety Kappa epitomizes. But first 
in our memories will be the opportunity it gave us to contribute our share as 
war-conscious Americans. We are proudest of our persistent drive for the pur- 
chase of war bonds and stamps. 

Those exhilarating discussions in the smoker . . . the philosophies of dream- 
ers with an ideal. Four colorful years in Kappa, a brief reconnoiter, and then 
on with the play!

Never a dull moment — our slogan! It really makes one wonder to look 
back even a year. There was the entertaining of the National President and 
the State Chairman which started ’4l-’42 off with a bang, and things just 
haven’t let up since. Then followed a Faculty Party (with the smoker still 
in its renovated state) and the initiation of Dr. Wiley and Mr. Wade as hon- 

By the way, did you go to the May dance last year — the one we put on 
with Phi Alpha Tau? We certainly hope you didn’t miss the presentation of 
all the new sorority members (we added nine last year — the Luau, you know). 
And farewell parties at the Lincolnshire — never liked farewells before! 

This year we surely do miss Andrus, Brendlin, Cox, Flill, and Wilson, and 
finally Miss Nancy Doble (sorry — we mean Mrs. Berbrick! ). But there’s our 
presentation of Mr. Connor (honorary of ours) with his Romeo and Juliet eve- 
ning, planned for the middle of February. And there are always teas and 
other things. 

Nothing dampens our spirits to the extent that we can’t enjoy one an- 
other’s company. And with "Mrs. Anthony” still in our midst — well, need I 
say more?

Looking back at four happy and eventful years as "Sigma Delts” at Emer- 
son makes it very difficult to say "goodbye” to all the jolly times we had to- 
gether — but for consolation we always have our reminiscences. 

We can always remember and live again our hectic but happy days of be- 
ing rushed and "Tea-d” at the Statler, and our even happier experience of be- 
ing pledged. We can laugh at the riotously funny "Hell-night,” and we can 
still sense the fragrance of those lovely gardenia corsages which were presented 
to us at the impressive candlelight initiation. And then — that ultimate feel- 
ing of importance upon becoming full-lfedged members of the sorority. 

There are other things never to be forgotten — our weekly meetings on 
"six” in our cozy smoker, those inevitable lively discussions and bull-sessions, 
and last but certainly not least, our glorious farewell in May to school and 
.sorority at our "bang-up” formal at the Ritz. 

Yes, these are the things we can remember for many years to come, even 
though we have to say "goodbye” to all of it now. And these things we will 
remember, for fond memories always linger on . . .

Zeta is a lot of things . . . 

Zeta was a lot of things this year. It was the tea we gave for our Alums 
last fall. We were all determined to impress them — and after the two-hour 
strain of acting like ladies, the only impression we had was that the Alums 
were a bunch of smoothies. 

Zeta was the rehearsal at 130 Beacon Street for Toy Theatre all day Sun- 
day, when the temperature was six above zero outside and two degrees colder 
inside. Susie looked as though she might at any moment start for her home 
in the sunny South. Neither cold nor fever could stop Pat from emoting beau- 
tifully at every rehearsal. 

Then came the big night. We presented our annual project of Zeta Toy 
Theatre, three one-act plays; and a melodramatic good time was had by all. 

Zeta was the meetings with Mimi looking supremely intelligent, Freda 
looking at her new red ankle-strap shoes, and Jane presiding with glamorous 
efficiency. It was the smoker at two every Saturday morning with half the 
crowd lounging in slacks, looking like Irving Nurick; and the other half look- 
ing distinctly like John Whitcomb, telling about their dates. 

Zeta wasn’t a name — it was a lot of things. 

Zeta is a lot of things . . .

The Newman Club of Emerson College is affiliated with the International 
Federation of Catholic College Clubs. 

The Federation sponsored a Hallowe’en dance at the Walker Memorial 
at Tech to which many of the Emerson Newmanites went. We enjoyed our- 
selves so much that a suggestion for another such dance was gladly approved. 
However, a more solemn thought pervaded our minds at Christmas time, 
when the Federation announced that the Emerson Newmanites were to repre- 
sent the charity branch of the organization. Donations of food and clothing 
were collected and later distributed. Indeed, we are not without a more seri- 
ous outlook on life, for frequently during the year we have met with the Har- 
vard Newmanites and held open forum discussions of political and religious 

The annual meeting for new members held at the Catholic Women’s Club 
was attended by Paula Hillery, Frances Crowley, and Clare Regan, each of 
whom contributed to the entertainment with a reading.

The Menorah Society opened its eighteenth year at Emerson College in 
October, 1942, under the leadership of Barbara Goldberg, President; Shirley- 
Ann Leven, Vice-President; Shirley Sterling, Treasurer; and Marcia Basch, Sec- 

The initial social function was a welcoming tea for all new students. This 
successful gathering was held at the dormitory, and many of the guests became 
active members of Menorah. 

The annual formal dance for the benefit of the scholarship fund was not 
held this year. Instead, we planned inter-collegiate U. S. O. dances with Cal- 
vin Coolidge College and Portia Law School. Other informal dances and cab- 
aret parties are planned so that we may be able to give the scholarship, the 
Walter Bradley Tripp Award. 

The Menorah Society has behind it a fine tradition of service, and we hope 
that these worthy standards may continue for many years to come.

To our friends in Emerson who have joined the armed forces of the United 
States we send our best wishes and with them the sincere hope that they will 
do their alma mater and their country proud!

I have waited 

A long time to see the sun. 
Others say it has been 
Charring the sky 
For a long time. 

But not my sun, 

Not my sky. 


Salt strands of memory. 

Wild seaweed dreams 
Flung on the whipped spume. 
Lost with the ebbing tide. 

Cursed by its yellowed rheum. 
How many suns have dried 
Salt strands of memory. 

Wild seaweed dreams? 


An old lady 
Once told me 
She would give anything 
To be young again. 

And I said, "So would I.” 


There is no concluding sorrow. 
Suffer late or soon. ■ 

No set years of dedication 
Make a man immune; 

Grief may come tomorrow. 


They say resignation follows, 

A healing man designed. 

Acridity needs no temperance, 

I will not be resigned. 

— Marjorie Semonian. 



So alone of a sudden 

That the sound of the Soul's silence 

Beat in my car drums. 

I struggled over the track that men pre- 

And when I should have laughed 

I cried. 

And when I should have cried, I laughed 
so bitterly 

That had you heard me your soul would 
have been as ice. 

All that was vile I wallowed in. 

All that was beautiful I trampled under my 

Lest it should rise up and slay me. 

The me that was. 

All those years stretched like a dark grey 

From horizon to horizon. 

My back was toward the sun 
Therefore I could see only the superficial 

Only a reflection of the sun’s light. 

And after the timeless vagabondage finally 
I knew the lie of life. 

For I leaned against a shadow 
And the shadow wasn’t there. 

But at that moment, a sunbeam broke loose 
And danced upon the prism . . . 

How beautiful to be alone . . . 

— Carol Zendman.

(The Charles River) 

That, alas, was something 
Remembered dimly in a dream. 

The river flowing in swift undulation 
Toward the sea would almost seem 
To be motionless and part of the haze 
Hung o'er the water. So it was 
Thus seen long years ago 
And remembered these many days; 
Forgotten seldom, and though 
Time has made many changes. 
Cherished as if a silver stream. 


Strangely enough it is not 
Of the things I thought 
I would recall that I think at all. 
Rather those that remain 
Are the small and mundane 
Trivia. They will never 
Depart from my heart. 
Bittersweet in retrospect. 


The single candle flames above your head. 
The rain would be a metronome 
For this mad flood of music 
Pouring itself upon us. 

But Franck will have no metronome. 
Ecstatically the symphony rushes on. 
Soaring in Gothic arches — 

Making a cathedral of this attic room. 

The disregarded rain ceases. 

And when the D minor ends 
There is pulsing silence. 

The candle murmurs gently. 


A glimpse of Heaven, however brief, 

Serves only to induce a greater grief 
Than ever has been felt before. 

A flash — a glimpse through the celestial 

Acts as a quivering decoy. 

And soon, alas, there comes to pass 
The heart's own breaking out of joy. 

— Barbara Gallison. 


Mozart is a tiny trilling bird 
Caged in enamelled wire. 

Singing his perfect minute song. 

His voice cuts clear and sharp 
Through thundering tympani and gushing 

Through Liebestraurn and Rhapsody in 

We still the heavy tumult with a word, 
And hark to him, a little singing bird. 

— Miriam Phelps.

A star 

A heavenly mist 

Three shepherds and a babe. 

A hymn 
Sweet voices 

Flickering candles and a cross. 

A fir tree 
Gilded branches 

Radiant smiles and loving hearts. 

A star 

A shrouded calm 

Three vultures and a corpse. 

— Lisbeth-Anne Niesz. 

Deep and still is the pool 
By which my love lies dreaming, 

Deep and still are his eyes 
As he thinks of me. 

Thinks of our last drive in the country, 
Thinks of our last farewell kiss; 

Dreams of our next drive in the country- 
Who knows when that will be! 

Deep and still is the pool 
By which my love lies dreaming; 

Deep and still is the pool 
That our tears have made. 

— Freda Gardiner. 


I watch the lonely hour of day grow near 
When violet shadows steal upon the snow 
And crystal lights of countless stars appear 
To gather up the pregnant earth below. 

So like the frosty nights of those brief weeks 
When we trudged hand in hand upon the crust 
Letting the wind blow hard across our cheeks. 

Oblivious of all but love and trust. 

That oft I cannot tell which is unreal. 

This lonely hour of now or yesterday 
Until the bells from out the valley peal 
And chase my ghostly memories away. 

Now from my mountain I can plainly see 
All that has been — and what can never be. 

— D. L. Miller.
